Kane Matthews, Alpha of his small wolf pack in Cloverleah has been raised to believe that mates are not possible for gay men and has lived his life accordingly. Kicked out of his home pack years before because of his sexual orientation Kane has built a solid and comfortable life for himself in the small town of Cloverleah.
Imagine his surprise when an unscheduled visit to the small town’s diner unleashes a flood of emotions in the man he didn’t think possible – not least of all, lust. But finding out it is possible for wolf shifters to have gay mates is just one of the things that Kane has to overcome if he is to have the forever future he has been hoping for.

Shawn Bailey never expected to find his mate. He is just too different – an “Other” who has the power to instill fear in any other shifter. After spending ten years on the run from his Alpha father he spends most days just trying to stay alive. When a
chance encounter brings him face to face with his mate Shawn has to decide if the man in front of him is worth staying for.

But with hunters, Alpha challenges, Kane’s parents and a smitten Alpha from another pack all interfering in Kane and Shawn’s budding romance, not to mention some surprising answers about Shawn’s own unique talents can these two true mates find the happily ever after they are looking for?

Kane is a alpha of a pack of gay men because they were not accepted by the packs they were born in..
He thought he would never find a mate because he was told it was not possible for a man to mate with another man. Well he was told wrong so lets say he was a little surprised when eating at a diner in his town when he smells his mate who is the new cook.
Shawn is a very special wolf who also happens to be a alpha too. He has been on the run so long and alone he is surprised when Kane’s pack accepts him so easily into their pack.
I have to say I loved the way this author wrote this shifters and the characters. All the protectiveness these men feel for their mates I just loved it!
There was so much action and steam in this book that everything mixed together so well! But let me say when I say there was steam I mean there was a lot of steam and as crazy as it sounds for me to say this it was almost too much. Yea I know who does not like steam especially when it was hot as this author wrote it but sometimes at least for me it can get to the point were it is a little too much and I just needed a little more story between these two but other then that I really liked this book!

All together I really liked this book!
I would recommend this book!
